This and That
Do you like my newest apron? It has nice big pockets and I really like the pink and black print too. It was a thrift store purchase of course.
I cleared off the top of my Mom's old treadle machine to dust it and took the opportunity to show the littlest how the machine worked. Too bad the belt is broken or we could actually have sewn something.
After I dusted we decorated the dining room for Fall.
My DH built this sturdy wood box that I filled with Indian corn that I've had for many years and ceramic gourds etc.. as well as the lantern which I'm not too sure I like but I can always change it.
When we finished decorating the little guy helped me bake chocolate chip cookies, While they were baking and I was working on peach crisp he decided to get his modeling clay up and be creative.
He made wonderful swirl patterns by mixing colours.
On our walk this morning we passed a garage sale so we had a look around. We had brought no money but the woman whose gs it was put 4 tea cups with no saucers and one cup and saucer set aside for me. I went back later and got them. $3 for the lot. That's them lined up on my cluttered counter.
I hope you're enjoying the long weekend.
Thanks for visiting,
